The Tumbler (version 1). Yes it's another Tumbler, but lets face it who hasn't had a go a building this iconic car.
About this creation
I decided I wanted to build The Tumbler after I saw The Dark Knight Rises (I know the black one wasn't in it), I thought I would have a go at building it from memory and therefore did so with a little artistic licence, from this picture you can see that the sides are comprised of the "cheese wedges" where I was attempting to get some of the angles The Tumbler appears to have in its armour.
From this picture I have tried to capture the look of The Tumbler's windsheild along with the outside mounted wheels. And either side of the nose are the twin guns that Batman uses with vigilance.
As you can see, this picture shows the back end of The Tumbler, it has the rampless jump engine inbetween the large rear wheels, these wheels where the defining item that decided how wide this model was going to be, and above them is the wing assembly.
This is possibley my favorite picture, it shows The Tumbler from the top and it shows how wide the vehicle actually is, I felt that "Bruce Waynes other car" should be reasonable wide and not overly long.
Attempting to make this model minfigure size was proving difficult because of how I want to make the roof work, so I had to make changes to the size and therefore think it might be a little bigger than some people might like, all I have to say to them is at least it is not as big as the offical LEGO version.
From this picture you can see why I didn't want to change how the roof works as this is as close to how the roof actually worked in the films Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
This image shows the inside of The Tumbler, the steering wheel moves up and down to allow Batman to get in, anothe one of my bug bears is that my Tumbler can only hold one figure again due to my roof opening this will have to do for now.
Now that I have Batman behind the wheel, so to speak you can see how much room he doesn't have in the cockpit also you can see where the steering wheels sit on Batmans legs. It also shows what parts I have used for the moving roof.
This picture shows a close up of The Tumbler, it might help someone with there designs.
And the final image shows my Tumbler and my Batpod together. The Batpod will be put on MOC Pages shortly.
